I could, honestly, eat these grilled shrimp every week and not get tired of them. They are so simple to prepare, flavorful and incredibly delicious. I use an Adobo Ole’ Spice Blend from Dangold’s gourmet collection. I love this seasoning for so many dishes, like seafood, tacos, fajitas, soups and chicken. It’s super versatile and does not contain preservatives, sugar or other additives that don’t go along with my clean eating plan. This spice blend contains: salt, paprika, ground black pepper, onion, dried oregano, ground cumin, garlic powder and chili powder. You could easily make your own blend, too!
Bacon Wrapped Grilled Adobo Shrimp
1 1b jumbo raw shrimp, peeled and deveined (about 16-20 prawns)
2 tbsp Adobo spice blend
3-4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 lb uncured bacon, slices cut in half
wooden toothpicks, soak in water for about 30 minutes prior to using
Preheat your grill by turning to high for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, cook bacon slices until bacon fat starts to melt, but not completely done (the bacon should be pliable enough to wrap around the shrimp.) Set aside.
Toss raw, peeled and deveined shrimp with olive oil in a large bowl.
Add spice blend and mix until shrimp are thoroughly coated.
Wrap bacon slices around each shrimp and secure with a toothpick. Place shrimp on a grill pan and cook for 2-3 minutes each side, until bacon is crisp and shrimp is pink and cooked through, being careful not to overcook shrimp.
Then eat and enjoy. Nom nom!
